Things to do in Hong Kong
When visiting the Hong Kong Observation Wheel, there are certain things that you should pay attention to prior to your visit to make it smoother.
How much do the tickets cost and where to purchase tickets?
Compared to most worldwide attractions, the ticket to ride the Hong Kong Observation Wheel is such a bargain that it only costs HKD20 for adults that are about US$1.30 or 1.20 Euros! For children 3-11 years old, seniors 65+, and visitors with disabilities, tickets cost only HK$10 each. Children 3 years and under get to ride the Wheel for free and if you want more privacy, you can book a private gondola which can hold up to 8 people for HK$160.
The ride on the Hong Kong Observation Wheel takes about 15 – 20 minutes for about 3 rounds, which is plenty of time to capture the beautiful panoramic views of the Victoria Harbour. You can purchase the ticket either on the spot or in advance online. Booking online means you save time queuing and if you would like to avoid crowds, the best time to go is before 4 pm on weekdays.
Enjoy more savings by purchasing combo tickets with the Carousel
Besides the Ferris wheel, we also have a beautifully hand-painted Carousel at the Hong Kong Observation Wheel. Tickets for the Carousel cost only HK$30, but if you purchase a Wheel & Carousel combo, the cost is only HK$40 for adults and Hk$30 for children. With a variety of different horses and carriages, it is perfect for visitors of all ages. You will be spoiled for choice to capture photos as you gently cruise on this ride.
When is the best time to ride the Wheel?
It is always a good time to ride on the Wheel but there are times when it is especially magical. The evening is without a doubt one of the best times as the glittering waves and the pinkish orangey sky when the sun sets make the perfect shot! As we enter the night it is also a popular time since watching all the skyscrapers lighting up in different colours is incredibly memorising. At 8:00 pm every day, you will also be able to watch the Symphony of Lights, when the lights on buildings all around Victoria Harbour dance in harmony. During the daytime the Hong Kong Observation Wheel on the other hand allows you to take in the finer details of the skyline, including buildings, boats, busses and the people below.
